This is a 120 year old Victorian house with a spectacular view of the ocean, beautiful gardens. Because of a cancellation, we were generously upgraded to a suite that had beautiful views, remodeled bathroom. There were fresh roses from the garden in the bedroom and bathroom, folk art from local artists, and the breakfast included fresh fruit, an omelet to die for with herbs from the garden, cheese, spinach, avocado, (you could have whatever you wanted) and granola and yogurt. Very gracious and informative hosts. We have stayed in B&Bs in New England; this was the best.
